Earn College Credits for Life Experience

Working adults enter college with more skills and experiences than traditional age students. You’ve spent years on the job or in the classroom, so you shouldn’t have to start from square one, and at Peirce College, you never have to. Do you have relevant work, military and/or prior learning experience? Then it’s time to make those experiences work for you at Peirce. You already know that time is your most precious resource, and, for most of us, money isn’t too far behind. At Peirce, we don’t want to see you waste either. That’s why we offer all of our students a free credit for prior learning assessment that results in up to 30 credits toward an associate degree or up to 90 credits toward a bachelor’s. Graduate faster and save time and money by making your life experiences work for you at Peirce!

Credits for Prior Learning

Do you have job, college or other developmental experience on your resume? Our free credit for prior learning assessment will look for ways to turn your past college and life experiences into credits. You can also CLEP out, turn certifications into credits, gain credits by examination and more.

Credit for Military Experience

Did you know that Peirce College was founded in 1865 to serve Civil War veterans? Today, we’re proud to continue that heritage. If you’ve served in a branch of the United States military, then you may be eligible to earn college credits for your experience and apply them toward your degree at Peirce.

Credit for Work Experience

If you have experience from your career that you think is applicable to your college degree, then Peirce wants to give you credit for it. Our free assessment will determine if you’re eligible for college credit for life experience. Schedule a consultation today learn more about how you can leverage your experiences to graduate faster.
